    If you have prior active service and transfer to reserve do you wear both good conduct medals?

    Thanks for the reply. So to confirm, if a member transferred to the reserve after 5 years of service on year six he would receive the reserve good conduct rather than active? Just want to make sure it is correct that even though some of the time was active the timing makes it a reserve medal.

    Your original question made it sound like you had earned both a GCM and a Reserve GCM and wanted to know if you could wear both, which you could.  This question is a bit different. If the GCM is a result of your active duty service, then I believe you would wear that even though you're now in the Reserves.  To earn a Reserve GCM, you need three years of satisfactory participation, no discipline issues, etc.  If you just transferred to the Reserves, you wouldn't have had time to complete the requirements for a Reserve medal.

    Looking at the award manual, the member would only need to complete 1 good year in the reserve for a Reserve Good Conduct Medal, granted there isn't a break in service in between active to reserve for greater than 3 months.

    "Active duty personnel who affiliate with the reserve within three months of their release from active duty may apply active duty time not previously credited toward a Good Conduct Medal toward the Reserve Good Conduct Medal. A period of active duty time carried forward as a fraction of a year is applied as an equal fraction toward the Reserve Good Conduct Award retirement point requirement (rounded down)."
